Finding Rest in the City

Pursuing a restful life in a culture that leads us astray.

Busy. Rushed. Anxious. Overwhelmed. Burned out. Not Enough.

This is how the world can leave us feeling. Maybe you can relate? We’re constantly pushed to do more, be better, know everything, have perfect kids, husbands, relationships, and homes — and look flawless at the same time. Chasing this may bring us validation, but over time, it depletes us.

God promises us a different life when we follow him — a restful one. 

He shifts our hurry to calm. He helps us prioritize our lives and focus our days. He covers our worries with peace. He transforms our scars to stories of survival and success. He refreshes our weary souls.

Finding rest in our lives is a journey. There are battles to fight, losses to grieve, and challenges to overcome. But, growth is worth the pain. Each step of the process brings us closer to the restful, abundant life we’re meant to live. This site is a glimpse into my journey toward rest. It is my hope that it will leave you feeling encouraged and supported in your own pursuit of a more restful life.

HI, I'm jen
Nice to meet you!

I’d love to tell you that I’m a laid-back, go-with-the-flow person that can teach you all there is to know about becoming more restful. Except, that’s not me at all. I’m a Type A, ultra-organized, highly-sensitive person that is naturally wound tight. But the good news is that Jesus promised that there’s rest for people like me — perhaps, that’s you, too. I may stumble often, but I’m making progress towards leaving perfectionism behind and discovering the more restful life God has planned for me. I’d love for you to join me!
